Aptima receives Agile Teams programme contract

21st September 2017 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Aptima has received a multi-year contract worth $3.5 million from DARPA for the Agile Teams (A-Teams) programme, the company announced on 18 September.

The programme will focus on advancing the science of future human-machine collaborative work.

According to the programme, human-machine partnerships are increasingly pervasive throughout many work environments, including the military, with missions drawing together soldiers, drones, robots, and autonomous systems. However, unlike human teams that can adapt, compensate, and apply learning from one event to the next, the blended operations of humans and networked smart systems require new models to govern and guide their complex interactions and decision-making for optimal performance.

To advance this scientific foundation, Aptima and its partners are developing a framework to represent, test, optimise and train complex socio-technical systems capable of peer-level interaction, mutual learning and problem-solving.

Daniel Serfaty, CEO and principal founder, Aptima, said: ‘The goal is to create organisations that are more dynamically responsive, that can quickly adapt to changing situations and reallocate the right abilities, tasking, and workload across complex, mixed human-machine systems.’

Aptima specialises in applying machine learning, human performance and cognitive systems integration to the complex organisational challenges faced by the US Department of Defense and government agencies.
